Indian Women’s Cricket Team have shown dominating performance in England’s own outskirts. The Team went on to whitewash England Women’s Cricket Team and won the 3-matches ODI series by 3-0. All the stars were in favour of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team as the Team bided goodbye to their most experienced Campaigner, Jhulan Goswami.

The ODI match against England was her Career’s Last Match and this tournament will be her last tournament. All the other players of the team successfully managed to make the last tournament memorable for Jhulan Goswami.

It happened in the 44th Over of England’s Innings, When Deepti Sharma came out to bowl her 8th Over. The match was on the edge as England needed 17 runs to win off 6 overs and India needed just a Wicket.

The third ball of the over saw the controversial dismissal of Charlotte Dean.  Deepti Sharma saw Charlotte Dean out of her crease and knocked the bails off same as Ravichandran Ashwin did to Jos Butler in IPL. The fans are even comparing Deepti Sharma with Ashwin. Some fans are also referring to Deepti Sharma as ‘Lady Ashwin’.

How It Happened: Deepti Sharma saw Charlotte Dean out of her crease and wandering forward before she completed her delivery stride, Deepti watched all this and calmly knocked the bails off. It’s in the Laws of the Game and is a perfectly allowed mode of dismissal. Deepti walks away towards her teammates who are all giggling around even as the umpires refer to the third umpire.

Watch the video here:

The decision is relayed on the big screen to loud boos from the Home of Cricket crowd. And the decision came out on the big screen as ‘OUT’. Dean was in tears, Ecclestone and the others on the balcony can’t quite believe what they were seeing. But that’s how the game ended and India white-washed England.
